tar -px is probably obligatory here. Converting xz to gz should mean the 
tar blocks themselves are not altered in any way...

dmesg output says that you have devtmpfs in your kernel, which means you 
don't need to populate /dev manually, you need only mount the devtmpfs 
pseudo filesystem... having said that, I'd be interested to hear whether 
or not the Real Time Clock works.

In general Quadra 650 drivers should be OK, though that kernel is not 
recent enough for mac serial console support.
